Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2016 November)
Gr 2–4—A selection for readers interested in all things extreme. Chapters are presented in a question-and-answer format. Compact, simple sentences enhance understandability, but aren't very stimulating. The best of the bunch, Extreme Flyboarding, outlines the basics of the young sport, which was developed in 2012. "Nailed It!" sidebars are peppered throughout each title and spotlight a leading figure in the field. The zaniness of these subjects is the draw here. VERDICT While the topics are wild, the writing is bland and may not hold much interest.. Copyright 2016 School Library Journal.
